Today's trip to Wasaga beach for our 3 year anniversary was a lot of fun. And quite relaxing! I got to wear my new prego bathing suit and even out my tan. :)
On the way there, I got a call from my midwife who got the results from my ultrasound. Apparently I have a low-lying placenta which basically means that my placenta is lying over my cervix. So this will mean I'll go in for one more ultrasound in my 3rd trimester to find out if it has "moved" (it doesn't actually move, but as the uterus grows it can gravitate toward the top of the uterus) or not.
Only 10% of women who have a low-lying placenta (also called Previa) in their 2nd trimester still have it in their 3rd trimester. So that's a good stat.
However if it does stay over my cervix until the end, the only way to get the baby out will be by C-section.
My worst fear. Not that there's anything wrong with a C-section, but it's just the thing I want least. So we'll see. But I'm not worrying too much because there's really nothing I can do about it. It's all a waiting game at this point.


  1. Wow, at least they can pick it up early these days!! I didn't know those stats, but that's something to pray hard about!!

  2. I had not heard about that condition. Interesting stats though and encouraging that it will change. What a privilege to know that it is in God's hands.


I love hearing from you!
